Jeremy Liew of Valley VC group Lightspeed Ventures has a good post on this blog this week called "Post mortems on two failed startups from their founders". Touches on two stories from two different startups that failed. First a list of 7 mistakes from Monitor110 (raised $20mm) and the second a top ten list from a company that did not raise money.
If you are in the start-up business, then this is worth a read.
